SYNOPSIS

 

Krzysztof and Michał are Polish guys in their twenties. They spend their nights wandering the deserted streets and metro tunnels of Warsaw, roaming from clubs to house parties, from beach raves to hazy after parties. They have chosen a life of care-free hedonism and live every moment to the full. If the buzz makes you forget breathing, it is just a sign of success. The night is full of pills and thrills, every moment and every word heavy with meaning. Time after time, dawn after dawn, everything is crystallized in one word: Youth.
